'm not going to confirm john brennan or anyone else until the administration shares information with the congress about who deleted references to al-qaeda three weeks before the election. i think it was purposefully done and i want to know who did it before we move forward. >> you're committed to holding the nomination up? >> yeah. i don't want to. but i'm not going to let the administration get away from having to be held accountable. the state department, you will hear from hillary clinton. who did change the talking points and take al-qaeda out? what did the president do in seven hours? they are making two movies about the strong leadership and the bin laden raid. this administration leaked every detail about the bin laden raid so the world would know how strong their own national security. when you have a major debacle like benghazi you can't get basic information four months later. i don't think they are pursuing offenders aggressively, frankly. they are stonewalling the congress. john brennanbe nor anyone else should be concerned as the acting director of the c.i.a. until
went before the cameras this week -- defense secretary nominee chuck hagel, c.i.a. choice john brennan. and today, hamid karzai, the president of afghanistan both he and the president were talking about the end of america's longest war. >> every day more afghans are stepping up and taking responsibility for their own security, and as they do, our troops will come home. and next year this long war will come to a responsible end. >> once the transition to afghan forces is completed, once the bulk of these international forces have withdrawn from afghanistan, we hope that the dividends of that transition economically to afghanistan will be beneficial to the afghan people and will not have adverse effects on afghan economy and the prosperity that we have gained in the past many years. gwen: taken together, what do the president's personnel choices tell us how he will deal with the challenges facing him in places like afghanistan? alexis? >> one of the things that i was thinking about when we heard these nominations and saw these -- and i'm including john kerry in this, too, for secretary o
-- confirming vote or a vote to deny the confirmation of john kerry, you know, chuck hagel, john brennan, jack lew? >> well, fortunately, i'm going to be in a position where i'm on the armed services committee, and the foreign relations committee, so i'll get a chance to question both senators kerry and hagel, and i look forward to hearing them answer some of the tough questions that have been raised. that's what the confirmation process is about. >> do you have concerns about chuck hagel from what you know so far? >> you know, i think senator hagel deserves all of our admiration for his service in vietnam, for his service to the country as a senator from nebraska, and he would be the only enlisted man who has ever served in the military to become secretary of defense if he gets confirmed, but i do have some serious questions for him about how he would implement the amendment that i just put into the defense authorization bill to make sure that women in the military who are victims of rape or incest are able to access reproductive health services and get the same coverage that other women thro

the c.i.a. a top senator is calling to hold up the confirmation for john brennan. senator lindsay graham accuses the white house of stonewalling the details of the attack. today the white house responded. >> would it be unfortunate i think in pursuit of this issue which was highly politicized the senate would hold up the nomination of john brennan to be director of the c.i.a.. >> shep: meantime, the nomination has brought those controversial drone strikes back into the spotlight. he is one of architects of the program that used to assassinate terrorists overseas. >> good afternoon. this day brings word of another drone strike, once again along the afghan-pakistani border, reportedly killing eight people including an al-qaeda trainer. there has been six such strikes this year. they present the diplomats with consistent headaches as officials complain that these drones which are essentially unmanned vehicle that are armed with hell fire missiles frequently result in collateral damage of civilian deaths a charge the white house addressed today. >> we endeavor to reduce civilian casualties a
have followed john brennan's career for many years here. he has been all over the map on this issue has he not? >> reporter: that's right, martha and good morning. the senate intelligence committee recently finished a classified 6,000 page report on the cia's enhanced interrogation program said to concluding a aggressive methods, critics call them torture did not provide solid intelligence. it was during this period john brennan was at cia senator feinstein is ardent critic of cia program and she leads the senate intelligence committee along with ranking republican saxby chambliss who in the past has been highly critical of brennan's law enforcement approach to terrorist prosecution. it comes with the release of the movie "zero dark thirty." which depicts the manhunt for usama bin laden and the cia's use of the enhanced interrogation program. while deannouncing waurd boarding as un-american in a 2007 interview, brennan told cbs news said it was valuable. quote, there has been a lot of information that has come out of the interrogation procedures that the agency used against real hardcor
nominations, john kerry, chuck hagel and john brennan they are all white males. does the president have a diversity problem? hey, we'll get into that. afterall, he is the first african-american president. but first the latest out in los angeles, here she is with today's current news update, lisa ferguson. hi, lisa. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. vice president joe biden continues his talks on gun control today. he's meeting at 2:15 this afternoon with representatives from the video gaming community along with researchers who study the effects of simulated violence on young kids. last night's meeting with the hollywood entertainment industry went relatively well according to representatives at the meeting. they said the industry appreciates being included in the dialogue and looks forward to doing its part in seeking meaningful solutions. it still is not quite clear though what more washington can do to force tv shows and movies to temper the violence. >>> as for yesterday's meeting with the nra that, one didn't go so well. yesterday's talks had nothing to do with keep
to answer questions about past comments he made about israel and gays. and john brennan picked to lead the c.i.a. will have to answer questions to link to enhanced interrogation techniques during the bush administration. jeff sessions and others coming out against jack lew for treasury-secretary. sessions says he believes lew 2010 budget testimony before congress was, quote, the most colossal misrepresentation in history. listen. >> i just had one vote on it. i do think the senate needs to push back against this idea that people can come before our committee and say anything they want to inaccurately and two years later want to be promoted to a higher office in our country really in the world. the secretary of treasury and we shouldn't treat that lightly. he needs to be held to account in my opinion. >> arthel: in order to get these nominees appointed, will president obama l have on to expend a lot of capital? former outreach director for john mckay and christy is director of new heights communications. good to see both of you. christy, i'm going to start with you today. should the senate ch

. lindsey graham says he's going to put a hold on john brennan. are they going to have to say guys, you have to pick one. you can't fight them all because the obstruction charge then starts. >> i think the idea of holds is maybe a little bit farfetched. you know, even those who are sounding pretty tough about chuck hagel indicate they think he'll get confirmed. but they want to ask tough questions. i think it's tough to beat a senator over policy issues. even if the issue is real. i think john brennan is going to face questions about the leak investigation. maybe on the left over some of the, you know, enhanced interrogation issues. you know -- i don't see any of these things bubbling up to the point where you actually get a hold. you know, we'll see. but i don't see that. but i see the hagel nomination certainly being tough. >> and i want to turn to guns here a minute. we're seeing -- it's funny, the white house has a very vehement reaction to the "new york times" story this morning, saying they are just wrong, they are not backing off an assault weapons ban. they are going to make thi
in government. the trio of john kerry for secretary of state, john brennan for the cia, and former senator chuck hagel for the defense department would be unique in that both kerry and hagel are vietnam veterans who have had firsthand experience of war. so what will this mean in terms of how america will approach military conflict in the future. jonathan capehart is an msnbc contributor and an opinion writer for "the washington post" and jimmy williams joins us from washington and is an msnbc contributor. john, when the president announced his pick for defense secretary, he made an important reference to how chuck hagel understands the notion of war. take a listen to this, john. >> chuck knows war is not an abstraction. he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud, that's something we only do when it's absolutely necessary. >> it sounds like chuck hagel is going to be a million miles away from the idiocy that we heard throughout the republican primaries when people like rick santorum and mitt romney would try to outdo each other in terms of their desire to s
is real. i think john brennan is going to face questions about the leak investigation. maybe on the left over some of the, you know, enhanced interrogation issues. you know -- i don't see any of these things bubbling up to the point where you actually get a hold. you know, we'll see. but i don't see that. but i see the hagel nomination certainly being tough. >> and i want to turn to guns here a minute. we're seeing -- it's funny, the white house has a very vehement reaction to the "new york times" story this morning, saying they are just wrong, they are not backing off an assault weapons ban. they are going to make this push. but it does seem as if this week biden was trying to lower expectations, talking about executive action, small bore by nature. you can't to big things by executive action. and the fact that, you know, it's like -- there seem to be -- they're talking about consensus that may not go big. >> well, and it certainly will go broad. that will deal with mental health, that will deal with, you know, background checks in the largest possible way. i've talked to democratic sen
, obviously, and is a capitalist. >> well, i would think after chuck hagel and mr. john brennan, the senate republicans with the tie. [laughter] >> they have been opposing the names them out for several days. i was with senator graham and senator stott today. and i would say this with respect to jack lew. i am much more concerned by the fact that he presided over the facts of a budget proposal from this president. my friends on the other side of the i love to go back to the president. you know how many votes as budget proposal got the united states house and senate? the same number that my daughter's budget proposal. so i am concerned over the fact that he cannot draft a budget. if he is willing to unveil the most closely guarded national secret that we have, which is president obama's and i will be happy to give him a listen. i am more troubled about mr. mr. lew's ability to garner a single vote on capitol hill of. lou: already reminding us of lew's new seat. >> it didn't take long. lou: congressman, we appreciate you being here. congressman trey gowdy. we will have much more on the gun-co
battle? why some critics on both side of the aisle strongly oppose john brennan's nomination. we'll take you live to washington on that. >>> plus damaging testimony in the case of a woman charged with killing her lover in cold blood. wait until you hear what one witness claims jodi arias was doing the day after that brutal murder. >> when you go back to your house, what do the two of you do? >> we talked for a while. i think we agreed we would watch a movie or something like that. and that's what we did. we turned on a movie. >> what happened during the movie. >> at some point, i mean we were talking and, we kissed this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, you need an ally. ally bank. your money needs an ally. jenna: new controversy in washington over the president's picks for the director of central intelligence agency, the head of the director of the cia. this is ahead of john brenn
nominated so far, you would think john brennan would be the most controversial. he's the one no one is talking about. >> that's right. you can look at all these candidates, hagel and lew, mainstream candidates who represent the president's positions flawlessly, are a stark contrast with the bush administration, therefore the republicans might have beef with him, but that's just not happening. we're being surprised when clearly it's part of a broader strategy to discredit the very idea of government. yes, the polls show that congress is more unpopular than head lice. >> and cockroaches. >> nickelback. >> castro still slightly more unpopular, but i think they can fix that. long term, that's not how people see it. long term, people go government, can't get anything gun. it casts it on the whole enterprise. >> hans, i want to bring you back in this for a second to talk about the ethicacy of a choice of jack lew as head of the treasury department. when we began this fiscal slope, curve, cliff discussion, tim geithner was involved, there was a sense jack lew would be involved. they were m
for that job. and john brennan and acting cia director michael morell remain on the short list. history shows most presidents get the nominees they want but in this political environment, there's no guarantee. >> it used to just be supreme court justices who inspire these sort of partisan free for alls. now it's bleeding down into a cabinet pick as well. >> reporter: the president has already made one choice for secretary of state, senator john kerry for that position. he's expected to have a smooth confirmation. i did talk to a senior administration official, asked him if the president had already settled on names for all of those positions but just not made them public. this official telling me, quote, no decision is final. wolf. >> >> dalothian in hawaii for us. let's dig deeper. the politics behind philly. our sister publication "time" magazine takes a closer look at that. michael crowley is joining us here in "the situation room." thanks for coming in. >> thanks, wolf. >> it's never completely easy getting confirmation. you nominate someone, getting them confirmed. it looks like it's goi
for defense. mr. john kerry, secretary of state. the and mr. john brennan of virginia, for -- [inaudible] there you go. thank you very much, everybody. shepard: nancy pelosi, eric cantor. a.b. stoddard here with me from "the hill." columnist, editor. the signing happened in the president's room. >> with the very people he has been dealing with. majority leader cantor and house speaker john boehner on the fiscal cliff and onto the very important debate over whether and how and when to raise the debt ceiling, these are, it is a time of high tension. these are not people who get together often when. they do it is not easy, but everyone is playing a role today of high ceremony and giving it respect that it deserves. president obama is clearly, in a relaxed mood, enjoying, enjoying this, this occasion. you could see when he left to go back inside the capitol, i thought it was interesting to look a last look at the sea bodies down the mall and sort of drinking it in. it was interesting. he knows he has a few hours before it becomes the grueling combat again of governing and moving on to his am
killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the deaths of dozens of people, including up to 48 of the captured workers. algerian forces say they recovered at least 25 bodies after storming the militant held gas complex saturday, bringing the confirmed death toll to least 80. witnesses say the hostages were brutally executed. the toll could have been worse as hundreds of hostages had earlier managed to escape. a will on islamist fighter has claimed responsibility for th
of fights. he's willing to fight on chuck hagel and here you have a guy, john brennan for the cia who said that jihad is a legitimate tenant of isl-- tenet of islam and he said that he's not going to allow the debt ceiling debate to be died to spending cuts which we desperately needs. he obviously -- he wants a fight. what do you make of the strategy that he's employed. >> i think what's happened to him is he feels that by winning a second term, with a slight addition of democrats in the house and the senate he now is, you know, king of the the world to quote an oscar winner of bygone days. and you noticed in these lists, look at the list of the major appointees, starting with brennan and hagel and these are nobody of independent stature. it's not like the first term where he had a clinton, where he had a gates, where he had people who could be a team of rivals. this is a team of essential, you know, fact totems. he wants to rule and he wants to govern and he will not let anybody stand in his way and i think that's what he's saying and he will take on any fight in order to get his people.
they are very similar tempermental. >> woodruff: what does that say and though throw in john brennan. >> i think the chuck hagel thing, 579 cabinet officer notice history of the united states, and a grand total of nine nominees have been rejected by the united states senate in an up or down vote and exactly one since 1989 and two since 1959. i means that's all. so the idea of chuck hagel being rejected and the late john to youer who was rejected as secretary of defense, former senator there were large questions about his ethical dealings in business and his personal behavior toward women, and his personal kportment. and there is none of that with chuck hagel. i mean there is no scandal. there is no background that's going to come out and bite. so i think will you-- he's not the first enlisted man. bill perry who is bill clinton's first secretary of defense was briefly but then became an officer. he is a come bat veteran. i think it is interesting, david mentioned john kerry. john kerry, jim webb, dan ino way died, jim webb left voluntarily, john kerry will leave. they mr. only four members of th
, governor, we are not -- the person that in theory should be the most controversial, john brennan, the drone program, he took himself out of contention in 2008. nothing has been said about him. >> because he is low key and on the radar screen from the public, and it not one of the big three. >> might check in with rachel maddow. >> i was going to say, i also think it's because there's been an acquessence. >> the republicans like drones. >> bernie sanders is planting a flag in jack lew's -- >> he represents the entire left of the democratic party? >> one wing of the very progressive left. you are just moving it like a very far -- a tad -- i'm not saying anything against senators here on this show, but i think -- >> bernie is a greet graet guy, but it's a tiny little wing. it's probably a little fet zeesh fet other the wing. >> wow. feathers and wicks. we need to take a break. president obama breaks bread with hamid karzai at the white house, but will they break from his withdrawal plans from afghanistan? we will have a live update on the meeting after this. (dog) larry,larry,larrryyy. why tak
hagel and john brennan, because they have been controversial and have some opposition. >> well, first of all, with chuck hagel, you have someone who's decorated war hero, you have someone who served well in the senate, who has a lot of support from people. at the same time, you have senators who have legitimate questions. i think what's important here, andrea, we're finally going to have a hearing to have opportunity for the nominee to answer these questions instead of just having his name out there not being able to answer it. you've seen a number of senators that are open minded and give full consideration to his nomination. i was just concerned this kept going without a nominee, now there is a nominee for both positions and all of these concerns, as they should be, should be considered in the process. >> based on what you now know, do you think hagel will be confirmed? >> i have no chrrystal ball, i wouldn't have thought we'd be in the senate at 2:00 in the morning on new year's eve. i don't think anyone can really say, but i think there are a number of people who have been very op
's nomination of john brennan to be the next cia director suggests that trend is likely to continue. brennan, a strong proponent of drones as the president's chief counterterrorism advisor. for more on how the u.s. drone program works let's get to chief washington correspondent james rosen. he is live for us at the state department. james? >> reporter: jon, good morning. this program presents a consistent headache for the diplomats in this building and who must frequently contend with complaints from afghan and pakistani officials who say these drones all too often wind up killing innocent civilians instead of terrorists the drone program is one of the national security initiatives that president obama inherited from the bush administration and one which the current commander-in-chief has dramatically expanded. for all his criticism of president bush during the 2008 campaign over his conduct of the war on terror president obama has largely kept in place if not enhanced the architecture of that war as mr. bush and his advisors designed it. with his announcement yesterday that he is seeking to
with john brennan and john kerry to be the next secretary of state. we will be having much more extensive coverage of this later today at 4:00 p.m. in "the situation room." thanks very much for watching. brooke baldwin continues our coverage right now. >> wolf, thank you. the worst flu season in three years rocks the country. doctor sanjay gupta joins me live on what to expect over the next month. i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. showdown at the white house. find out what happens when joe biden meets the nra and movie execs about gun control. plus one group wants to see pictures of osama bin laden's body. now a court is hearing its case against the president. and -- >> the nominees are -- >> the glitz, the glamour, the controversy. some big names left off the oscar list. you will hear them, right after this. >>> here we go. top of the hour, breaking news. i'm brooke baldwin. we have a school shooting in taft, california. we want to go to george howell. glancing at me e-mail, all schools in kern county, california, all schools on lockdown with the exception of this high school which ha
brennan for cia. and before that, john kerry for secretary of state. four top appointments since the election. four men. and then, this. "the new york times" published the white house photograph wednesday, showing the president speaking with top advisers in the oval office. ten people visible, all men. and late wednesday, labor secretary, hilda solis announced e's leaving. the third woman in the cabinet heading for the exits. all this prompted "washington post" columnist, ruth marcus, to quip, it's "mad men" goes to washington, except peggy's leaving. >> it's time for me to move on. >> reporter: the white house says such criticism is way offbase. >> women serve in key policy roles as they do in the administration. >> reporter: as that all-male photo hit "the new york times," the white house released a new photo of the day, with a slightly different look. overall, about 43% of the president's appointees have been women. considerably more than president bush. and president obama chose women for arguably his two most important nominees, to the supreme court. soon, the president will
senator lindsay graham vows to hold up john brennan's confirmation to the cia until we get inching on the attacks in benghazi. and the national cathedral says yes to same-sex marriage, receiving cheers and jeers. we will have a fair and balanced debate. america's news headquarters from the nation's capitol starts right now. president obama's second term hasn't started officially, but the agenda and the cabinet are taking shape. so are some of the clashes over the president's nominations. jennifer griffin has more on the fights ahead. >> reporter: first, there will be the confirmation battles, many of which seem like they will be bruising. none more than the hearing before the senate armed services committee over the new defense secretary, chuck hagel. the hearings could start as early as this week. the white house has mounted a vigorous defense. hagel says his record on iran, gays and the military has been distorted. members of the armed services committee will question hagel. but today on "face the nation," senator john mccain called hagel a friend, though he has questions and is
the one that's got the toughest road, i think there's criticism of jack lew and john brennan, but also i think especially for chuck hagel as secretary of defense. interestingly enough, he was a former republican senator, and i think he thought he'd get bipartisan support. hagel didn't make a lot of friends among republicans because he was well to the left of them on a lot of foreign policy issues. opposed the troop surge in iraq, and opposed get tough measures against iran. a lot of leading republican senators don't like him. and some top democrats who are at least on the fence about him, because he took -- he made a statement about gays that they didn't like several years back. and also he has not been an unquestioned supporter for israel. i think hagel has the toughest road to go. we'll be talking to two key senators about that and the fight over gun control, which is starting to pick up in the capital. kelly ayotte, rising republican star, and senator from connecticut, blumenthal. >> looks like john kerry is the one that might sail through easier than the other two? >> i think kerry w
